Nice space. Lamb burger was tasty but tasty but maybe not worth the $20.

When I go to Terzo Piano, I feel like I rockstar. The staff is amazing, drinks are epic, and the atmosphere is to die for.

So happy that I checked this place out! Who knew there was such a gem in the middle of the Art Institute? The indoor part of the bar really reinforces the message that you're eating in the middle of a museum, but in a really cool way. The outdoor area is a clean, neat, modern open-space area with a sculpture off to the side and a beautiful view of the skyscrapers behind Millennium Park. Originally came here for drinks, but discovered that the food here is awesome. Their rosemary bread is freaking delicious---- I love the saltiness mixed when it's dipped in olive oil. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had eggplant fries, which made me feel like I was being somewhat healthy while indulging. Their salad and a couple of their other dishes were pretty solid as well, so I would definitely come back to try more items off their menu. Service was great as well--- our server was very courteous and prompt.

The restaurant was not very busy, except for a party in the rear yet it took at least 10 minutes to get a glass of ice for our water because the ice in the pitchers had melted. When our food arrived it was cold and we had to send it back and when the food came back it still was not hot. Our waitress took an entree off our bill. Our other complaint was that we asked for bread and was told they ran out due to two parties earlier and the kitchen didn't want to make more because it was late. It was at least 40 minutes before closing. When we spoke to the manager he told us that there was indeed bread, the kitchen had made it several minutes back and he offered to bring some to our table. I had, at this point, finished my meagerly portioned meal. All in all it was not a pleasant dining experience. The manager apologized, offering to buy us lunch the next time we came. However it is doubtful that we'll take him up on his offer. Not at all impressed.

The restaurant sits atop the modern wing of the Art Institute. The space is completely open, quite large, and features views of the surrounding Millennium Park area. The food is more of an accompaniment to the fantastic space. The duck flatbread was a bit too heavy and greasy while the pork shoulder was a bit too simplistic in flavor.

Great place for a buy-out event such as a wedding, but for day-to-day dining, it's a pass. Food crawls from the kitchen and leaves you wondering why anything so pedestrian took so long to prepare. I wasn't particularly wowed by the food but I was definitely irritated by the price tag.

My girlfriend and I attempted to have lunch on a Thursday. There were not many people dining and we ordered charcuterie, the cheese plate and flat bread. We overheard our waiter telling other tables that the hamburger takes about 20 minutes to cook and if they were ok with that he would put in their order. When he placed our order he said it be right up without giving us any indication of a preparation time. We watched tables around us receive their orders, including the 20 minute hamburgers and still did not receive our food. After 45 minutes we called the waiter over and he had no idea where our food was and said he would have to get a manager. After an hour the manager brought over some pickles and let us know they had started working on our food. After an 80 minutes we ended up leaving without ever receiving anything we had ordered or an apology for the lack of service.
